Live the Way You Wish To Be!

I am 39 years old. I've battled my weight since my teen years, but never became obese until I got pregnant 12 years ago. My goal is to lose weight and get in shape. I need to establish and maintain a regular exercise routine, cut out junk food, and lower my daily calories. My current mantra is "Fit by 40" which is what I am aiming for right now with less than a year to reach that goal!

So to sum it up, I have to STAY BALANCEDOWN and allow it to become habit because bipolar disorder is ALWAYS lurking. Love you sweetie. I should've emailed right. Enjoy your day!

Wanting the best for myself, tended to OVERcommit. And when I didn't come through, the feeling was that of defeat. So, I've been skeptical, don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Lol. Friends like you however IS and has NEVER been a problem. TY

It might come as a surprise or maybe not that a 42 year old woman/mother STILL trying to get a clue. In the past SPECIAL has been a source of strength but also, stress. And it had/has nothing to do with anyone else.

Brenda thanks. It means a lot, I'm not forgotten : ) I don't remember if I explained it to you or not but for the last few months I'very been in this remarkable space of acceptance, self-love, and learning WHO I am.

It's so nice to see you! I'm still living my good-enough life with food, though it's actually even better now. I've recently had some health concerns that have focused me rather interestingly. I'm doing things I would have whined and complained about a few years ago very willingly; it's SUCH an inside job! I don't think I could have done them to lose weight, but I have lost some more. But I don't think a person can will herself to be at any particular place. People ask me what I'm doing: I say it won't make a difference if you don't get a foundation first. You know what my foundation is.

TGIF!
